GUI drawing for Java

I would to know if there are any java GUI designer to design
Java Swing applications, such that you can drag/drop
textbox, dropdownlist from menus to paste onto the form.
Can i double click the control and write code for it..
Basically i need to do a swing app.

I have only used VS.NET 2003 to design forms with textboxes, labels, combobox, etc on VB.NET before.

I downloaded NetBeans & JCreator latest from java website.
Not sure can netbeans or JCreator do this..

I have not used NetBeans 5.0 but with 4.0 I was unable to change the gui codes -- generated by the GUI designer -- by hand there were a restricted way to change the gui codes

but JBuilder is much better in this way, it is capable of handling any swing app which has been even written by hand (not created by JBuilder's gui designer), because actualy it reads and understands the source code then draws the GUI.
(JBuilder is not freeware)

double click on that button and netbeans would create an actionlistener for you to implement the task

Or you can use Eclipse with some plug-in like Jigloo.
